Chancery Overview

Chancery work is one of the core strengths of Chambers, which is recognised to be one of the pre-eminent sets in this field. The set has been nominated for eight out of the last nine years as Chancery Set of the Year at the Chambers & Partners Bar Awards and in 2011 was named Chancery set of the Year. We are ranked for Chancery: Commercial (top rank) and Chancery: Traditional by Chambers and Partners and we are ranked for Private client: trusts and probate by the Legal 500.

Our experience includes both contentious and non-contentious work, involving the whole range of Chancery practice. This comprises companies, insolvency, partnership and LLPs, probate, trusts, civil fraud, property litigation, intellectual property, professional negligence, charities, and general commercial disputes.

The set’s reputation is underpinned by what Chambers & Partners has described as “its staggeringly fine commercial ability and marvellous business-like approach.”

In 2010, Alan Boyle QC was named by Chambers & Partners as Chancery Silk of the Year, and in 2013 he was named by Legal 500 as Traditional Chancery Silk of the Year. In 2008, William Henderson was named Chancery Junior of the Year. No fewer than 23 members of Chambers are recommended for Chancery work by Chambers and Partners.
